It's just America's cohorts, the UK, holding up their end of the bargain regards Assange's planned extradition to the US. They cannot be seen to be in blatant cahoots with the US; but they are required to facilitate getting Assange to a place that the US cares little about being labelled sugar daddies of (Sweden).

I wonder if the Chinese stormed the US embassy to retrieve Chen Guangcheng, whether it would have elicited a similar 'meh' reaction from the US...

Simple solution, turn up and surround the Police scum, if there are enougth of us then they wont be able to do anything. Offer Mr Assange passage to where ever he wants to go and if the NWO Totalitarian Police and Goverment scum try anything we rip there throats out, secure Mr Assange, do a about turn and then head for Number 10, some piano wire and a long drop will sort David Cameron right out!

We cant let them extrodite this innocent man, plus we might get our country back!

The London Ecuadorian embassy is a first floor flat in a block. It doesn't have a roof apart from the communal roof to the block which is obviously not diplomatic territory.



I guess that knocks that one on the head then


Apolagies for not having done the simple googling to find that out - should've done - so thanks Alfie1


Nothing's impossible and i'm sure that short of dissembling Assange and re-assembling him in Ecuador, there must be a way of getting him out. I love a good puzzle!

BTW Thanks for your replies Flavian & Andy06shake. Would've made for interesting telly at any rate!

The only problem with violent revolution is that it often leaves violent revolutionaries in control and Jo public are no better off, maybe worse.

Chuck out the corporate cronies, sure, but must we lower ourselves their ruthless depths?

I was thinking of a "where's Julian" website or thread even, people could post where they saw him. A friend of a friend said he left Ireland by Boat from the town of "Dingle" last weekend. the boat was flying a French flag, though it might have been a Dutch flag sideways. Honest.......... you heard it here first.

This is terrifying man...


If the UK do this, make the embassy no longer an embassy and storm it and arrest him, then what will that mean?
It's not only a slippery slope, it's dangerous.

I don't disagree. The problem is that under international law they would be well within their rights. However, the diplomatic implications may far outweigh any perceived gains. I really hope they have thought this through properly......

So what in the law applies to Assange?

I'm pretty sure the UK would be in a lot of **** if we did this.

The link to that particular "act" is in my first post, such an act shouldn't exist in the first place.

It is all just a big act really.


Here is the link again:

Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act 1987.
edit on 15/8/12 by woogleuk because: (no reason given)


A bigger point should be made, Assange (charged with a sexual offence in a country it is alleged to have happened in - their laws, not the UKs) has applied for political asylum. Unfortunately for him, political asylum is not a get out of jail free card for non political offences - that is a fact and it would apply to you, me and in fact as far as I am aware any country that recognises asylum.

If you agree or disagree with the charge then that's really up to you (by which I mean anyone who reads this), but it doesn't change the facts. Read the analysis section in the link below...

www.bbc.co.uk...

Wrong on several counts.

It isn't an international law, merely "convention". For reference, it is the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

The Embassy remains the property of the host nation, according to the Convention it doesn't belong in any way to the nation occupying it.

The Embassy is obliged to follow local laws, even if the Diplomats themselves are immune from prosecution, but they could find themselves all declared PNG and removed themselves..

Assange is fleeing bail and has broken his bail conditions, ergo he is breaking local law and the Embassy is assisting him in doing so. On that note, we have a "local law" which allows us to revoke the privileged status of an Embassy in such situations.

You are literally correct. However, this is one hell of a diplomatic situation for what is comparatively a trivial incident. It is not trivial to the victims of crime but it is a trivial incidentwhen compared to the consequences. There is a bigger story unfolding here and I strongly suspect Assange was correct : the crime is a stitch up and the US wants him for a show trial.

So tell me this : If a person knows they are being setup for a fabricated crime and knows a foreign power wants to put them in a show trial with the possibility of a death sentence, what should they do? Surely said person would run to the nearest embassy and shout "asylum" wouldn't they?

They'd to grant him asylum, if they didn't, they'd look weak.
